    07-05-2016 by Jemima

    My 7yr old daughter Kate has been at ACTiv for 3 years. She loves it & never wants to miss a class. It's relaxed & lots of fun! The best part about ACTiv (apart from the awesome teaching) is the beautiful role models she had around her. The ACTiv group of teens are such lovely kids & treat Kate & myself with so much respect! I love the positive influence & behaviour they all have on her. Charrisse is always there for us parents & is open & positive! The best thing I've ever done for my Kate!

    4 Reasons why Performing Arts is more than just a hobby

    A lot of parents are quick to pull their children out of their dance, drama or music lessons as tutoring takes preferential ranking. It's frustrating when something their child enjoys is ranked lower on a parent's priority list when compared to their grades at school. Is it really more important for a painfully shy 8 year old to have top grades than developing confidence? Their grades at school won't help them stick up for themselves in the playground and coming first in their maths class won'...

    Beneficial for children

    23-10-2016 by Jason

    I send both my children to imc and I'm generally satisfied. The no1 rating they use in advertising is a bit misleading though as many of the top martial arts schools in Sydney/Australia aren't included in the ratings method they use.

    Good for kids

    21-09-2016 by Dave

    Not the longest running school in Australia as advertised, but it is a good school for kids training.

    Point Break Drama’s encouraging tuition has allowed me to explore the art of performance through a broad a range of acting techniques that I have learned from attending their acting classes over the years. The enthusiasm from both students and teachers makes performing pieces enjoyable rather than a nerve wracking experience! They cater for every skill level whether you are just starting out or have had experience you will definitely improve under their guidance. I highly recommend Point Break Drama to everyone.

I strongly recommend PBD to anyone looking to grow their skills as an actor in a fun, supportive & challenging environment. I have attended many courses with PBD which have all been fantastic. Highlights being Leigh Pickford's casting workshop & most recently Felix Williamson's masterclasses, which helped all of us improve our scene & character analysis hugely.

    Hello viewers, I've been practicing martial arts for over a decade now and have been through a few clubs. TORA is not just about Karate, its about life and personal development with the team and family also. I really see TORA as family and a place where you can de load. You learn a great deal of respectful and knowledgeable instructors, the students are fun to be around and know when to get serious, and there are regular classes including Saturdays. From Karate to Kickboxing TORA offers some diversity along with level of intensity suitable for everyone - from a simple practitioner to a full contact fighter. So come on down, or up, and see what TORA is all about! James.

    A good setup

    20-02-2017 by Nicholas Stokes

    This venue included 2 hosts that did a good job organising games and revving up the party. The technology and the games seemed to entertain the kids (aged 7-9) well for an hour and a half. The other elements were there, including party balloons, music, food (basic), and facilities. The location is clean and well presented, with excitement coming from the ability to have darkness and the big screen. There were a couple of minor negatives. On the website it says something about 'We know who'll win in the end', which is a bit off. When we run a home party we make the games fair, and even tend to avoid having the birthday girl winning (after all they are getting presents and attention already). But this place was the opposite. I assumed it would be subtle fudge at the end but according to my kids it was very obvious throughout that the birthday girl was getting extra points. This spoils the games for everyone, including the host. Also the venue was very keen to get us all out right on time, even though there was no-one after us. 15min for cake was really too tight. These 2 issues could probably be avoided by talking to the organisers beforehand about your preferences. I would recommend this venue if it is not too far from you.

    Answer from Impact Wall EQ on 01-03-2017:
    Thank you for your thoughtful review. We have implemented this change so the parents get to choose if they want their child to win or not. It has made the contests much more exciting. Ronan (Impact Wall).

    Highly recommend!

    Tennis Quest is the venue for the best children's birthday party! The host Ronan, is amazing with children. He involved all the kids in 4 activities including tennis, disco and an interactive asteroid game. He left all the kids wanting more. The children had the best time and a few commented it was the best party they had ever been to. It is also very reasonably priced.

    Try it - its fantastic!

    21-02-2016 by Pearl

    We are thrilled to have found Tennis Quest! It is an amazing place for kids to learn skills and have fun as well. Ronan has a unique talent for teaching kids how to play tennis– his system really works! My son started lessons at 3 ½, he is now 4 y/o and declared the other day “I love forehand!” Tennis lessons are a highlight of our week – it is a friendly, fun learning environment for all ages.
